socks - toddler or child pattern using 2 circs?
I have knitted exactly 1 sock using DPN's. I'd really like to try the 2 circular needles method (I don't think I have any circular needs long enough to use the 1 long circular needle method)...

I was wondering if anyone knows of a pattern that uses 2 circs? My son is 2 years old but he has really big feet, about 5" long, so a small child's pattern would work well.

I have browsed through http://www.knittingpatterncentral.com but since the technique isn't necessarily listed for each pattern, I thought it might be faster if someone already knew of one.

TIA.

I usually make mine using Silver's Sock Class, but adjusting the numbers for 2 needles instead of 3. I find it to be pretty simple, since most of the time you have half the stitches on each needle. The only time it gets a little tricky is after you pick up the stitches for the gusset decreases. But once you've done it once, and the construction makes sense to you, it's a piece of cake.

If you don't find a pattern to use, I'd be glad to try to explain how I do it.
